A New Blog Title

I changed the title of my blog and here's why. It's something I've been thinking about for a while. You can also find this information under the page "A Meaningful Life." Be sure to check out my other pages (listed underneath my blog header).

The new title of this blog is "A Meaningful Life." I talked back in this post about what my mom did to make my life meaningful. I learned a lot of things from my parents, and I feel like I had a great childhood. Now as an adult I have learned maybe a few more things, and want to ensure my children also have a meaningful life. 

My wise older brother Joel once told me that if you want to ensure something happens, you tell everyone about it. That way you will be too embarrassed to fail because everyone knows about it. This is what he did with his weight loss, and he was very successful. I am hoping that by keeping this blog, I can similarly ensure success for my family.

I am still young, and our small family has a lot of life ahead of us. I am hoping this blog will help me start those meaningful traditions and follow through with them. When I decided to create a theme for this blog, I sat down and made  a list of all things I wanted to be sure to include. It was really fun mapping out my "meaningful life," and the list for "what I think makes life meaningful" was pretty long. However I am also excited to learn as our family grows and add things to my 'list' of what makes a meaningful life.

This blog is where I will chronicle all the things I think make a meaningful life, so someday my kids can look back and see that we tried to be deliberate parents. I want my children to know that we tried to be parents who carefully thought out what would make a good life for their kids. 


  1. I love your family pictures! So gorgeous! And thanks for the tip about getting off facebook-and inspiring me to read Louisa May Alcott. I can't believe I never have!

  2. A meaningful life. Good title Ash.
